Description

Home to some of the only bouldering in Ohio. Great day trip if it's close by with some definite classics.

Witches Front/Back and Trailer Park are the two more boulder dense areas with difficulty ranging from V0 to V7.

Route information, photos, and topographies are from the wonderful people at athensbouldering.blogspot.com/. Without them, gathering all this information in one place would not be possible.

Thank you so much!

Isn't there a climbing area north of East State Street just past the outskirts of town? I climbed there back in 1981 with the OU Alpine Club. Aug 2, 2016

Went out for the first time to Witches. Beautiful location and plenty of potential. I found the map to be a bit outdated. I would rate most problems a grade or two higher. The sandstone is fairly soft so I assume it has changed since first graded. Advice: Use the map to get bearings but look for new problems. May 15, 2015
